The Regional Care Center in the Bay Area treats all kinds of cancer. We offer many of the same patient services as the main campus, with more being added every day. We want to assure patients that they are getting the same world-class standard of care in a comforting community setting.
The Regional Care Center in the Bay Area offers complete suspicion of cancer services. If you have a lump or other troubling symptoms, we can let you know whether or not it is cancer and provide treatment and management of your condition, no matter what the diagnosis.
